Xi’an Sailong metal materials Co., Limited is a leading provider of products using metal 3D printing technology. Xi’an is a professional supplier of various metal-based products.
Metal 3D Printing is a laser-based technology that uses powdered metals. Similar to Laser Sintering, a high-powered laser selectively binds together particles on the powder bed while the machine distributes even layers of metallic powder. Support structures are automatically generated and built simultaneously in the same material and are later manually removed. Once complete, the part undergoes heat treatment.
3D Metal Printing generates components of high dimensional precision with a smooth surface finish. Printing with multi-materials and a broad range of materials (such as rubber-like, ABS-like, and totally transparent materials) are available in Material Jetting 3D printing. These features make Material jetting an attractive option for visual prototypes as well as tooling manufacturing.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) are two manufacturing processes with metal additives that belong to the fusion (power bed) 3D metal printing family. The two techniques have a plethora of similarities. Both utilize a laser to scan and fuse (or melt) selectively the metal powder particles, bonding them together and constructing a component layer-by-layer. Also, the materials, which is used in both processes, are metals in a granular form.
Both DMLS and SLM are used in industrial uses to create end-use engineering items. The term 3D metal printing is referred for both methods, in general, and we define the fundamental mechanisms of the fabrication technique that are essential for designers and engineers to understand the advantages and limitations of the technology.
3D metal Printing has a unique position in the modern product development world. It allows you the direct manufacturing of complicated end-use components and facilitates machining for traditional manufacturing technologies, reducing lead times and costs.
3D metal printing technology combines the flexibility of 3D Printing design with the mechanical characteristics of the metal. From tooling inserts via cooling channels to lightweight structures for aerospace, any metal application that encapsulates complex metal components potentially benefits from metal 3D printing.
